I’m a self-taught artist. I live in a sailboat on the San Francisco Bay, which is a lovely and inspiring place to make art!

For a large portion of my life, I was severely abused by my family. I turned to writing poetry for help. In the last four years, I began to draw, after being encouraged by another survivor friend. I went to some art workshops, read books, and practiced.

I love working with graphite, as it is so responsive. Since I live on a sailboat, the cleaner and more contained the art supplies, the better. I use Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro for my digital work. I recently received a Cintiq HD 13" which I am enjoying working with.

For me, drawing is an extension of my healing process. I like to think that by drawing faces, figures of people, and plants, that I am giving myself back some time and heart that I lost to abuse. As if to say, there are beautiful things in the world and I want to share them, with you. ♥

If you like a design, but would like to see it on a product that is not available, or would like to see the design with a different background color, I am willing to make adjustments to make sure you get what makes you happy! Please contact me via Redbubble Mail, or at penney@penneyknightly.com.
